Gag Order Issued in Attempted Murder Case

HONOLULU (KHNL) -   A state judge has issued a gag order in the case of a Honolulu couple charged with trying to murder their 11-year-old daughter by starving her.

Defense attorneys for Melvin and Denise Wright had asked the judge to issue the order.  It bars lawyers and trial participants from disclosing information about the case.

The judge has rejected another defense request to seal court records in the high-profile case, saying it was too broad.
